64 bit OS + bochs

I want a 64 bit OS to play with. Trouble is, I have no 64 bit CPU.

But since bochs now apparently emulates AMD64 CPUs, shouldn’t I be able to run e.g. the 64 bit version of ubuntu on it, while running on my old 32 bit hardware? It seems to me that that’s possible, but I can’t find a whole lot of documentation on it.

A simple HOWTO would be real nice 😦


One thought on “64 bit OS + bochs

  1. Not the 05/07/2005…

    It already fails if you have an AMD64 proc…So i just guess it may not work with no 64 CPU at all…:)

    But Bochs & Qemu teams are working on it…
